Radio ID Database

Folks were complaining that the “official” Radio ID Database was slow and unreliable, I decided to make my own.

You can access my version by clicking on the link to the left side of this page.

The way my implementation works is as follows (see fig. 1):

  • Every hour, a scheduled task downloads the latest database data dump from radioid.net (in CSV format).
  • Another scheduled task imports this data into my server’s mySQL database.
  • A user (you) accesses my web interface and preforms the search
  • PHP code searches the mySQL database and spits out your results,

Although the site can be accessed via any web browser, I optimized the interface to work very well on phones and tablets.
